What is Cyclosporine?

Cyclosporine is a medication used primarily to prevent organ rejection after transplantation, particularly kidney, liver, and heart transplants. It is also used in certain autoimmune diseases, such as psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis, and in some cases of severe atopic dermatitis (eczema).

Dosage: Cyclosporine is usually taken orally in the form of capsules or solution. The dosage depends on factors such as the patient's body weight, medical condition, and response to treatment. It's important to follow the dosage prescribed by your doctor.

Timing: It's typically taken twice daily, preferably at the same times each day. Consistency in timing is important to maintain stable blood levels of the medication.

Follow Instructions: Always follow your doctor's instructions carefully. Do not increase or decrease the dosage without consulting your doctor.

Monitoring: Regular blood tests are often necessary to monitor cyclosporine levels in the blood and check for any adverse effects on kidney function or other organs.

Interaction with Food: Cyclosporine should be taken consistently with regard to food intake, either always with food or always without food. Mixing with food can affect its absorption, so it's important to stick to a consistent routine.

Avoid Grapefruit: Grapefruit and grapefruit juice can interact with cyclosporine, leading to potentially dangerous side effects. It's advisable to avoid these while taking the medication.

Common Side Effects of Cyclosporine

Common side effects include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Shaking (tremor)
  • Increased hair growth
  • High blood pressure

Serious Side Effects

Cyclosporine may also cause more severe side effects. The serious side effects of this medication may include:

  • Kidney problems: Cyclosporine can cause kidney damage, so it's important to monitor kidney function regularly.
  • High blood pressure: Regular monitoring of blood pressure is necessary.
  • Increased risk of infections: Cyclosporine suppresses the immune system, increasing susceptibility to infections.
  • Risk of certain cancers: Long-term use of cyclosporine may increase the risk of certain types of cancer, particularly skin cancer and lymphoma.


Can I drink alcohol while taking cyclosporine?

It's generally advisable to avoid alcohol while taking cyclosporine, as it can exacerbate certain side effects and interact with the medication.

Can cyclosporine be used during pregnancy?

Cyclosporine may harm an unborn baby. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, consult your doctor before taking cyclosporine.

Can I stop taking cyclosporine if I feel better?

It's important not to stop taking cyclosporine without consulting your doctor, even if you feel better. Stopping suddenly can lead to organ rejection or worsening of your medical condition.

Can cyclosporine interact with other medications?

Yes, cyclosporine can interact with many other medications, including over-the-counter drugs and herbal supplements. Inform your doctor about all medications you are taking to avoid potential interactions.

I've been a Canadian Med Center customer for about 6 years now. In all that time there was never once that I considered taking my business elsewhere. They do a great job and the people they contract with are also super.

Always appreciate their prompt service but especially appreciate their hanging in there when there was difficulty getting my doctor to renew my prescription!
